I have a base part that is basically a rectangle, it gets different extruded connectors attached at each end. There are several types of connectors and I would like to place them all on a part using smart components for each connector and each side. There will be 64 configurations to start out with.
I did try saving the part as a assembly and applying the configurations first then creating the smart component, however after the first smart component was made the second attempt at making a smart component on a new configuration would not allow me to select the base part. Fail
I have been managing this with configurations of the base parts but I need to do this for hundreds of parts. I think this might be a good option but I am open to other solutions.
